That wasn't always the case. I think when I made this, NZ wasn't an answer.

Please make it clear in the instructions that you are looking for the current name of FYROM - on a time-limited quiz it was very irritating to type out what the abbreviation stood for and then find out it wasn't accepted!

But... the full expansion of FYROM is accepted. I just tried it now and verified.

I think you may have the expansion incorrect? Or maybe made a typo?
